New Sony ad filmed at Volcan Irazu

If you know the Irazu volcano east of San Jose, you might be interested in a new ad for the Sony 4K TV that was filmed there. Eight-million flower petals were used to simulate the eruption of the volcano. They weren't actually placed in the volcano, but air cannons and fans were used to create the impression of "lava." There were no computer-assisted graphics used.
